Professional and Policy
One of the core aspects of the Centre's work was to promote
the exchange of ideas on matters relating to policy,
practice, and activism. To that end, the Centre was interested
in building links with lawyers, policy-makers, and activists.
We believe that academics and practitioners have a great
deal to learn from each other about the formation, development,
and outcomes of law and policy.
Our intention was that Centre members collaborate
on providing responses to government consultations on
issues within our remit. CentreLGS has responded to
a number of government consultations since 2004, details
of which can be found on the CentreLGS
Consultation Responses page. Individual Centre members
also respond to consultation responses in their own
areas of expertise. These responses are available to
download from the Individual
Consultation Responses page.
We operate an associate
fellowship scheme, aimed at practitioners working
within the broad field of law, gender and sexuality.
Associate fellows were based at one of the Centre's
institutions for a period of between 2 weeks and 3 months.
Funding was available for travel and subsistence costs.
Please see our visitors section for further information on the scheme.
